The San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District (District) is seeking new members for its Business Advisory Council (BAC) for the 2019 to 2021 term and your organization is invited to nominate candidates to apply for membership.

The BAC was established in 2010 to encourage communication between the District and the small business community and to advise the District in its efforts to ensure that small businesses are afforded equal opportunities to participate on District contracts and agreements. Small businesses include Disadvantaged Business Enterprises, Disabled Veteran Business Enterprises, Minority Business Enterprises, Women-Owned Business Enterprises and Micro Small Business Entities.

BAC members are involved in providing valuable feedback on BART’s contracting, services and procurement policies, programs and practices.

The BAC currently consists of up to 15 members representing the small business community within BART’s service area as well as representation from the following industries: professional services, architecture and engineering, procurement and construction. Committee members serve a two (2) year period, on staggered terms. Meetings are typically held every two months from 10 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at District facilities.

If you are interested in serving on the BAC, please complete the attached application and include a letter of recommendation from your organization, as well as a cover letter describing your interest and submit to the Office of Civil Rights by September 17, 2019.
